As you may recall, after Maya's (Bianca Lawson) death, some super-dedicated Emaya shippers sent Pretty Little Liars showrunner Marlene King tons of pink-and-white pens with the message "we want Maya alive & written back into the show" written in purple on them.

While the shippers may not get their wish, they did get Marlene's attention. As an acknowledgement of their devotion to the show and ship, Marlene has made sure some of the Emaya pens will make their way into the screen in the Season 3 finale (Season 3, Episode 12: “The Lady Killer”).

"Yes, the purple pens are in the finale," Marlene commented when a fan asked her if we'll see a "Emaya pen" in the finale. "But you have to pay attention to see them."

We think it's really sweet that the PLL crew is acknowledging the fans like this. So keep your eyes peeled for the pens!

Catch an all-new episode of PLL on Tuesday, August 21 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
